I once took a class in journalism. It was helpful to take this course. Prior to taking this writing class, I had taken the mandatory language arts classes since grade school. The study of and understanding of different styles of poems written by such writers as Angie Dickinson and others made it clear to me that there were many and various styles of poetry. Free-form doesn't always rhyme. Iambic pentameter was another thing to learn. every two consecutive lines having the same cadence or tempo or rhythm and ending in a word that sounded about the same as the last word of the previous sentence was one way of writing poetry. But more than this, a poem must express feeling and emotion and value. A good set of examples of poetry styles and this link contains much good information for you to take a look at in the following link below: Enjoy!
From abstract poems to villanelles, find a range of poetic forms in this list, including French, Spanish, Vietnamese, Japanese, Korean, Welsh, and contemporary forms--and more!

I enjoy writing poetry occasionally. Trying to fit a certain style isn't my thing. I go with "expressing feelings and emotions." However, one style I'm partial to is the Japanese Haiku.

I have my favorite styles also and they are not contemporary in the least.
